Anfang der 90er der Vertrieb von Spielen noch kein feststehender Markt, den Versender oder Handelsketten aufgeteilt hätten. Es gab den Einzelhandel, monatlichen Diskettenmagazine und den Underground-Bereich der Shareware. Einem technisch innovativen Team namens id Software war es vorbehalten, kurz den letzteren ins Rampenlicht zu befördern, indem sie mit diesem Geschäftsmodell kurz nacheinander drei Hits landeten: Commander Keen, Wolfenstein 3D, Doom. In dieser Episode geht es um Wolfenstein 3D, das nicht id Softwares erster Ego-Shooter, aber eine maßgebliche technische und spielmechanische Weiterentwicklung zu Hovertank One und Catacomb 3-D, die id nur ein Jahr davor rausbrachte. Wolf3D brachte den Durchbruch für die junge Firma, legte den Grundstein für Doom und war wegweisend für das entstehende Genre der Ego-Shooter. Christian und Gunnar sprechen über Wolfenstein 3D und Spear of Destiny, die Geschichte von id Software und die halboffiziellen Vorgänger, die Wolfenstein-Spiele von Silas Warner. Hinweis: Für Unterstützer auf Steady/Patreon gibt es in Kürze eine spannende „Wusstet ihr eigentlich …?“-Bonusfolge mit Trivia zum Spiel sowie eine exklusive Sonderfolge zur Historie der Shareware-Spiele.

After missing out on the latest aPhone release, the Acorn-product-obsessed Mr. Redge makes a desperate deal with a dark magic sorcerer. Quivering over almost losing his quills, he meets Acorn founder Beeve Hogs. Beeve tells him the story of King Midas and his love of gold, and the wizard that grants Midas' greedy wish. Will the story's unintended consequences touch Redge's heart and remind him what he should value the most?PARENTS, TEACHERS AND HOMESCHOOLERS: This story was inspired by the mythological story of King Midas and the Golden Touch. It's a lesson to never forget what matters most in one's life—friendships, connection, caring for others. It highlights the perils of valuing things over people.  Episode webpage: https://jonincharacter.com/the-golden-touch-screen/ If you liked this story, you may also like Episode 30: The Goldiquills Effect, a retelling of the classic Goldilocks and the Three Bears: https://jonincharacter.com/the-goldiquills-effect/ Dorktales Storytime Podcast website: https://jonincharacter.com/dorktales-storytime-podcast/CREDITS: This episode has been a Jonincharacter production.

Bernard Ward is the Group Managing Director of Acorn Recruitment, one of the top 1% of recruitment agencies in the UK, and who passionately believe that "there's more to recruitment than just filling vacancies". Bernard talks to Jeannette about the importance of placing people at the centre of the equation when it comes to recruitment, the value of legacy when it comes to building relationships that last, and the best ways of attracting the best talent to your business. KEY TAKEAWAYS When we leave a company, it's important to leave on good terms. We never know what might happen in the future, or how poor decision making will impact a future aim or goal. The sectors we're drawn to often evolve and change. The key is to always keep up with what's important, enhance your knowledge where possible, and apply yourself to becoming the best in your field. There has always been a huge demand for the best people, but with the advent of the high cost of living, demand has certainly increased for higher salaries, regardless of the sector. Your onboarding process is absolutely key. You must ensure that your training and development at the outset supplies people with the skills they need to do the job. BEST MOMENTS 'Your legacy is what people judge you on' 'It's come along a hell of a road over the last 25 years' 'There are always economies of scale' 'There's always been a war on talent' This is the perfect time to get focused on what YOU want to really achieve in your business, career, and life. It's never too late to be BRAVE and BOLD and unlock your inner BRILLIANCE.

Steve Furber is a seminal computer scientist, mathematician and hardware designer whose work includes the BBC Microcomputer and the ARM 32-bit RISC microprocessor which can be found in over 100 billion devices today.Steve studied both Maths followed by a PhD in Aerodynamics at Cambridge University before joining Herman Hauser and Chris Curry at Acorn Computers. For the next decade, he would work with a first-class team of engineers and designers to revolutionise the home computer market before he and Sophie Wilson went on to design the ARM processor with a relatively small team and budget and with little inkling of the consequence it might bring to the world.In 1990, Steve left Acorn moved to Manchester where he is now Professor of Computer Engineering at the university there. He was charged with leading research into asynchronous systems, low-power electronics and neural engineering which  led to the SpiNNaker project - a super computer incorporating a million ARM processors which are optimised for computational neuroscience. He is basically trying to reverse engineer the brain – a lofty ambition even by his own admission.In this wide-ranging conversation, we discuss Steve's life journey from studying maths with professors such as the famed John Conway and Sir James Lighthill to the highs and lows of building the BBC Micro and the story behind the ARM 32-bit RISC microprocessor.I thoroughly enjoyed talking to Steve and am overly excited about his SpiNNaker project which we also discuss today.Enjoy!--------------Steve Furber info / SpiNNaker info / Micro Men filmDanielle on Twitter @daniellenewnham and  Instagram @daniellenewnham   / Newsletter

The major subject of the show today is taken from Max Lucado's book "The Oak Inside the Acorn," which is about a young acorn who is told by his mother, "Don't worry, within you is a great oak. Just be the Tree God made you to be." Each of us has a special talent, a special calling, and a special intrinsic worth. We discover our value in who God made us to be when we live into that by claiming who we are and what God is calling us to instead of striving to be like everyone else, do it like everyone else, or appear like everyone else. To know more about this, tune in to this episode!  “When you try to be like everybody else and you try to fit in, you miss what God put you here to do. You miss your giftings, you miss who God created you to be. I don't know who needs to hear this today but within you as a great person, just be who God made you to be.” We all have an inner child that wants to know if we have value What God has called us to do, not what other people are doing, is what we are to live out You're not supposed to fit in You have a mission, you're a chain breaker.
